Happy Monday Quotes #27: Sweetness

I’ve been listening to some sweet little love songs this morning, and, while plotting my return to music, finished writing a few of my own late last week/over the weekend. Because sweetness is underrated, here are a few delicious quotes on that fuzzy, warm, gooey feeling when you realize your proverbial pockets are full of it.

 

“Full many a gem of purest ray serene/The dark unfathom’d caves of ocean bear:/Full many a flower is born to blush unseen,/And waste its sweetness on the desert air.” — Thomas Gray (from “An Elegy Written In A Country Churchyard”)

 

“It’s so hard to forget pain, but it’s even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace.” — Chuck Palahniuk (from Diary)

 

“Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.” — Andy Rooney

 

“It is the tenderness that breaks our hearts. The loveliness that leaves us stranded on the shore, watching the boats sail away. It is the sweetness that makes us want to reach out and touch the soft skin of another person. And it is the grace that comes to us, undeserving though we may be.” — Robert Goolrick (from The End of the World as We Know It: Scenes from a Life)
